Watch This Queen Bee Stop A Rebellion Before It Can Start

May 1, 2019

Ryan Brock captured an incredible moment while observing a colony of tree bumblebees as part of his Ph.D. program.

The queen catches a worker bee laying eggs and gives her a "rather nasty telling off".

In bumblebee colonies, worker bees can lay eggs in hopes that their offspring could one day take control of the hive.

But this queen was on guard and quickly put an end to a potential rebellion. She also made sure to eat the eggs.

Brock added that "worker #3 is still alive, although I haven't seen her lay eggs again since this happened!"
